Jackie's Saturday Night Live Surprise
When Oprah Show producers got a letter about an inspirational 19-year-old named Jackie battling a rare form of cancer, they sprung into action.
Because Jackie loves improv, Gilda's Club???a cancer support network formed in the honor of Saturday Night Live cast member Gilda Radner, who died of ovarian cancer in 1989???made one of Jackie's dreams come true with tickets to a taping of SNL with host Justin Timberlake.
Still, Oprah and some very special friends from SNL wanted to do more. Cast members Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudeikis surprised Jackie onstage with more good news. "Aside from coming to the show, we're going to have you come hang out with us during the week while we rehearse and meet our host, Justin Timberlake," Andy said.
Jackie was nearly speechless. "Oh my!" she said.
